Independence Day for Christians

As July 4th approaches, it reminds me of the old joke. “Did you know Canada does not have a 4th of July?” The answer is supposed to be, “Of course it does or the Canadian calendar would just go from July 3rd to the 5th! LOL!

Sometimes we get drawn into the simplest things. The obvious answer isn’t always the first thing that comes to mind. It can make us look funny or weird or out of place.

There is a question that has only ONE answer to; do you know Jesus Christ? The obvious answer is yes. But, do we really know Him? Do the people around you know Him? Do we study His Word and try to reach a relationship with Him? Lots of people claim to know Him, but not as many actually have a relationship with our Lord. As Jesus refers to the bridegroom in Matthew 25: 12, don’t be one that calls out to Him and He responds with, “But He replied, ‘I tell you the truth, I don’t know you’. That is a scary thought!

As a Christian, your INDEPENDENCE DAY has come! It came with a price. A price paid in full by the blood of Jesus Christ. The day you were cut to the heart and accepted Jesus as your personal Savior, was baptized into Him and began your relationship, your freedom was secured!

May God Bless America! And may God Bless YOU through His Son Jesus Christ and His Spirit!
